The 16th minute

The 16th minute
: After Rex Hammock blogged his visit to the White House, he got tons of media and blog attention and the flowers and flak that come with it. Now he reports on his reaction. Go read his latest posts. He continues to invite us all into his experience and it’s a kick to be there. This was Rex’ goal and he succeeded at it masterfully: “I did feel like (and while some of you will get this, non-bloggers will think it ridiculous) I had an obligation to other bloggers to record as much of my personal point-of-view of the experience as I could. I know we all disagree on where we stand on the issues and how we perceive President Bush, but I felt even his detractors would appreciate a blogger-version of the experience.”

    Hey, the guy got to meet his hero, the Prez, so what if his blog report was hero-worshipful and fan-boy like, so what? Let the guy have his fun, why are people slamming his feel-good moment in life. It has to be good for GWB to be in a room with people who are all a-glow… if he were really smart, he’s invite more bloggers! If he *is* trying to go “over the head” of the main stream press that is the best way to “get through.” I’m sorry that guy Rex is taking so much heat, though, his report was honest and candid and he certainly didn’t expect all the attention… he is waiting for the 17th minute now. (when things go back to normal.)
